We work on the business end of making the travel plans for our clients as seamless as possible. We expedite passport, visit the consulates, get travel visas in order, translate documents, and obtain the birth certificates or international driving permits as needed. With that in mind, how many of these travel quotes have you heard?
“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.” By Saint Augustine.
If you were traveling and your trip took an unexpected turn, this quote might resonate with you: “All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware.” By Martin Buber.
“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” By Marcel Proust
Ernest Hemmingway had it right about choosing a travel buddy, “Never go on trips with anyone you do not love.” By Ernest Hemingway. Helen Hayes felt a similar sentiment, “When traveling with someone, take large does of patience and tolerance with your morning coffee.”
Singing the praises of traveling alone: “When the traveler goes alone he gets acquainted with himself.” By Liberty Hyde Bailey. Another quotable about traveling alone comes from Rudyard Kipling: “He travels the fastest who travels alone.”
Christopher Hitchens had a very unusual way of choosing a destination: “I still make sure to go, at least once every year, to a country where things cannot be taken for granted, and where there is either too much law and order or too little.”
We’ll end this little list with a good one from Confucious: “Wherever you go, go with all your heart.“
